GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this very clean, 1962 International Scout 80 4X4 for consideration. The Scout 80 is the original Scout beginning production in 1960 and succeeded by the Scout 800 in 1965. The original Scout 80 are identifiable by removable sliding side windows available through early 1962, a fold-down windshield, vacuum windshield wipers mounted to the top on the windshield and an IH logo in the central of the grille. The Scout 80 is powered by a extremely reliable and somewhat primitive 152 four-cylinder engine, 3 speed manual transmission and Internationals rock solid 4 wheel drive system The only other 4-wheel drive recreational vehicle offered at that time was a Jeep. 1962 was the second model year Scouts were offered. The Scout are known for their ability to go anywhere and have high durability. They are a key part of automotive history as they are considered the first SUV.
This Scout is a rare find indeed. Just out of a very private Scout collection, the truck is a low mile example that has been restored approximately 15 years ago and has been kept in clean, dry storage since with limited use on private property and a few parade events. The truck is painted in classic red with white removable hardtop. This Scout 80 remains completely stock with the exception of a Panasonic stereo. The 152 CID 4 cylinder engine runs great with proven reliability and the Scout drives and operates as it did in 1962. Highlights include: bench seat, locking front hubs, high and low transfer case, restored interior with excellent original gauges, all knobs present and well finished painted dash and other surfaces; fully restored frame and underside with a rock solid core structure, new exhaust and brake lines, new shocks and a highly detailed engine compartment. The 32106 miles on the odometer are said to be original and this truck rides on classic steel wheels with original hub caps and the tires have massive amounts of tread.
Classic 4X4's have become very popular as of late and first generation Scouts are highly sought after around the glove. Their classic Americana design, utility and go anywhere attitude keep them on the “A” list of collectors and 4X4 enthusiasts alike.
